  1. Non-contraceptive hormones and the risk of rheumatoid arthritis in menopausal women.

    Article - En anglais


    Several reproductive factors appear to affect a woman's risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis.

    This study's purpose was to determine whether use of non-contraceptive hormones is among them.


    A population-based case-control study was conducted in King County, Washington and Group Health Cooperative of Puget Sound, a prepaid health plan.

    New cases of rheumatoid arthritis in peri-or postmenopausal women (n=135) were verified through clinical examination and compared with 592 controls.

    Both groups were interviewed in person about hormone use and demographic and reproductive factors.
